IPL 2022: RCB vs MI Dream11 Team Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Captain & Vice-Captain, Playing XI, Pitch report, and other updates

Winless MI will like to break the jinx against RCB


Mumbai Indians will take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the second match of Super Saturday in Pune. Under the leadership of Faf du Plessis, RCB has so far won 2 matches out of 3 and are upbeat to continue their blistering run. Australian superstar Glenn Maxwell will now be available for selection and therefore comes as a huge boost to RCB’s batting firepower. MI, in contrast, looked lackluster in their first 3 games as the hat-trick of defeats does call for a major turnaround in the future clashes. As the two heavyweights collide on Saturday, fans will be eager to watch the key player battles like Bumrah vs Kohli, Bumrah vs Maxwell, and Rohit vs Siraj.

RCB vs MI Dream 11 Top Picks

Dinesh Karthik

The seasoned campaigner looks unstoppable with the bat in IPL 15. The Player Of The Match in the game against RR, RCB has found a stellar finisher in DK. He has amassed over 90 runs at a strike rate of over 200 and is yet to be dismissed. Karthik has played for MI in the past and he understands the dynamics of the MI dressing room.

Ishan Kishan

The swashbuckling southpaw has been in sublime touch with the bat. He can singlehandedly turn the tide in favor of his team. In 3 matches, Kishan has smashed 2 fifties and has been a lone warrior for MI in the top order. The inclusion of Suryakumar Yadav has bolstered the team’s batting unit and MI will definitely bank on the duo for a change in the team’s fortune.

Wanindu Hasaranga

The Sri Lankan leg-spin wizard is du Plessis’s trump card in the middle overs. The MI batting lineup is decked up with star right-handed batters and Hasaranga can be a tough customer for them. The leggie brings in a plethora of variations that seldom fails to trap the batters.

Match Prediction: Who Will Win?

The most successful franchise of IPL is going through a shocking slump this season. Captain Rohit Sharma will be determined to be back in form and lead the team home. RCB will definitely be happy with the performance of the side so far. The likes of Shahbaz Ahmed, Harshal Patel, and Dinesh Karthik have been consistent performers and therefore the team management has got a match-winning combination ready in the initial stage of the season. RCB will be favorites to win the match but the chances of MI’s comeback can not be ruled out completely.
